Atari Dealer Demo (1980)

by Atari

Published 1980


Created as a demonstration program for the Atari 400 and 800, the "Dealer Demo" represents one of the forerunners of what would eventually become the "Demoscene", a decades-long culture to demonstrate programming skill and machine ability. This dealer demo is semi-autonomous, looping throughout demonstrations of sound and video capabilities of the Atari 8-Bit machines while touting their flexibility and use. It is possible to enter your name and interact with the machine, but the demos will continue if you do not.

This really brought back some memories and in all actuality was pretty spot on as far as the things it said it would do for computing. Atari was a pretty amazing product. I didn't really get into Apple until a few years ago. My dad brought home the first Atari 400 and later the 800. He did pretty much any and all of the things listed in the demo. I think the demo is why he bought it in the first place. It was for pioneers and God knows he spend many a sleepless night trying to prove that he would be one of those pioneers. Great walk down memory lane and I am am exuberant to be a part of the group! thanks!
